Bottled to celebrate the refurbishment of Mars Shinshu Distillery, it’s named after the area’s native chestnut tiger butterfly. The nose is beautiful but delicate: cotton candy, spring blossoms, powders and lotions, rose-scented Turkish delight, fresh linen, and cherry sherbet. The palate offers ripe orchard fruit, vanilla custard, clove, and honey. Its smooth mouthfeel makes graceful transitions between flavors, showing glimpses of cherry and strawberry. (1,122 bottles for U.S.) - Spring 2021

Country: Japan

For almost two thousand years, Japan has been producing high quality alcoholic drinks made from the ingredients available to them on their rich and fertile soils and mountainsides. The most popular and highly esteemed 'wines' of Japan are undoubtedly sake, a type of fermented rice wine, and the delicious, sweet and aromatic plum wines which are widely loved around the world. Both drinks are inextricably linked with Japanese cuisine and culture, and both are growing in popularity in the western world along with many other aspects of this amazing and unique country. Because of this boom in popularity over recent years, the sake and plum wine industry of Japan has remained strong, and it continues to be an industry steeped in tradition and many fascinating practices undertaken to keep quality at a high level.
